Another year, another spin of the Foreign Film Wheel to determine the next round of nominees for Best Foreign Language Film Oscar at the Academy Awards. The list of strange, foreign-sounding titles is as follows:

Algeria, “Hors la Loi” (“Outside the Law”), Rachid Bouchareb, director;
Canada, “Incendies,” Denis Villeneuve, director;
Denmark, “In a Better World,” Susanne Bier, director;
Greece, “Dogtooth,” Yorgos Lanthimos, director;
Japan, “Confessions,” Tetsuya Nakashima, director;
Mexico, “Biutiful,” Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, director;
South Africa, “Life, above All,” Oliver Schmitz, director;
Spain, “Tambien la Lluvia” (“Even the Rain”), Iciar Bollain, director;
Sweden, “Simple Simon,” Andreas Ohman, director

I’m not the most well-versed guy in contemporary foreign film, but I do like movies and I’ve only heard of 1 of these (I’ll leave it to you to guess which one). Anyway, all patriots know that America makes the best movies. Do I look like a socialist or something? Where’s Glenn Beck‘s Oscar??
